SkinCeuticals research & testing shows that unique combinations of antioxidants, when effectively formulated, provide superior results versus each single antioxidant formulation.
Phloretin CF is a specially crafted triple antioxidant cocktail formulation shown to provide a broad-range environmental protection due to a specific combination of 2% phloretin, 10% pure vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), and 0.5% ferulic acid. It is formulated under the Duke Antioxidant patent. Vitamin C is a highly-potent antioxidant that is, by its structure, difficult to effectively deliver on skin. The Duke Antioxidant patent describes the formulation parameters required for effective delivery of vitamin C to skin: 1) pure l-ascorbic acid (vitamin C); 2) an acidic pH within the 2.0-3.5 pH range and; 3) a concentration between 10%-20%. SkinCeuticals is the only brand to formulate antioxidants according to these parameters with your skincare in mind.
SHIELD AGAINST ATMOSPHERIC AGING
SkinCeuticals defines atmospheric aging as the visible result of a range of environmental aggressors on skin, including UV, infrared radiation (IRA), and pollution. Ongoing SkinCeuticals research & testing shows that over-exposure to these environmental skin aggressors may cause visible skin aging, and topical antioxidants can help prevent the impact to protect skin’s vivacity and youth.
1. In the morning after cleansing and toning, apply 4-5 drops to a dry face, neck, and chest before other skincare products. May be used on the back of the hands.
It is normal for vitamin C products to darken after opening due to air and light exposure. The formula will remain effective. Once opened, it is recommended to be used within 3 months of opening.
2. Complete your anti-aging regimen with a SkinCeuticals sunscreen. When used together, SkinCeuticals antioxidants and broad spectrum sunscreens provide the most complete protection against visible signs of aging caused by environmental aggressors.
